Artists and galleries across Whidbey Island can now register for Whidbey Art Trail’s 2015-2016 season.

Founded by Stacey Neumiller in 2011 as a way to support local artists and their work, Whidbey Art Trail connects artists and galleries from Oak Harbor to Clinton into a self-guided tour for visitors to scenic Whidbey Island.

Artists and galleries register for either a full- or half-page membership in the brochure and receive an Artist Page and placement on the Roster page of Whidbey Art Trail’s website. The Trail’s brochure is distributed throughout the ferry system, visitor centers, and businesses.

Whidbey Art Trail boasts highly acclaimed artists and galleries, such as Cook on Clay Flameware Pottery and Rob Schouten Gallery at Greenbank Farm in Greenbank.

“The Whidbey Art Trail is inclusive and exciting,” Schouten said, in the recent news release. “We make sure to tell our gallery visitors about the other wonderful arts opportunities and make sure they have the brochure/map when they leave. It just adds to the richness of their Whidbey experience.”

Whidbey Art Trail will host an info session at 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, at Cook on Clay’s studio in Coupeville.

Registration deadline is Sunday, March 15.

Email whidbeyarttrail@gmail.com or visit www.whidbeyarttrail.com for details.

Whidbey Art Trail, working in partnership with the Whidbey Island Arts Council, is a non-profit arts organization promoting the arts on scenic Whidbey Island in Puget Sound of Washington State. The Trail is committed to establishing an internationally recognized arts destination.
